The first step of every estimate is to perform a takeoff in-house and determine the quantities. We’ll prepare a detailed estimate and break down the entire estimate by CSI division.
We work on projects in all 50 states. As a starting point, we use a database called Craftsman National Construction Estimator and make adjustments based on complexities on the jobsite.
For example: for complicated wall assemblies, we might add costs for labor due to slower productivity or need extra equipment such as a Scissor Lift or Aerial Boomlift.
We are a licensed General Contractor and everyone in our team has actual tangible experience in the field not just theory. We require a background in Construction, Engineering, or Architecture to work at I AM Builders as an estimator so you can feel confident experience construction professionals are working on your bids.
We even back our estimates with a $1 Million Accuracy Guarantee covered by our Errors and Omissions Insurance.
